Max's Seafood Cafe
But, we’ve been there before. Waitstaff was wonderful, but told us the new chef in kitchen couldn’t handle Mother’s Day crowd. We got drinks, bread, salad and soup. Entrees never made it. Went home pretty hungry.
We were very disappointed. Took forever to get our food. Some of our food wasn't hot. Our understanding was that their was an issue in the kitchen. Chefs walked out.
The food was delicious! My son’s child’s menu homemade macaroni and cheese was probably the best I’ve ever tasted! The mussel appetizer and seafood entrees were so fresh. The service however, could be better. The kitchen was extremely slow. Our food took forever to come out. Our server was ok. She was very nice but could have been more attentive and kept us in the loop about why our meal was taking so long. We were not asked if we wanted another drink and had to ask for water refills.
The food definitely made up for the service, so we will return.
Salmon was very good . Jambalaya disappointing. Mainly rice, hardly any shrimp or sausage and expensive for the amount served. Waitress was very nice and attentive, and apologized for the long wait for food. Took almost 45 minutes for our meals. She said they had a new cook.
Love the building and decor. Was a bit dark as the lights on the one side of the dining area were out, and the candles brought to the table kept burning out in minutes. Several people at the hostess stand seemed confused as to what they were doing, and more involved in conversation than paying attention to customers. Food was a bit on the pricey side, given the portion size of the food. Undecided if I will return.
Food was very good. Our server John was very nice n attentive, but things moved a little slowly. I will definitely go back.
Always a great time. Our server Brieanna was the best. She was very polite, attentive, and ensured we had a great meal.
Excellent food. Excellent service! Nice variety of seafood plus beef and chicken dishes. Place was clean and neat. It was nice Max’s had a martini, cocktail and beer menu as well. Definitely going back!
The food was excellent, the ambiance was very nice. We loved the quaint little bar area. Unfortunately, our waitress wasn't so great.
Mussels!-really cool old school decor; nice quiet intimate setting, good food, nice service , lots of parking
The music from the bar was quiet, not overwhelming. Our entrees were very good and we were able to share a Caesar’s salad with plenty to spare. Overall, a very good experience.
Great food,especially the crabcakes
This is a neighborhood gem - ample parking, restored building with great food and great service. Highly recommend. Ask for John !!
Our food was delish, our waitress was attentive however the service from the kitchen a little slow. Every so often that may happen. We highly recommend. Cannot wait to return!
Awful. I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant and was extremely disappointed.
We tried restaurant week and will never go back.
Ordered a vodka martini with no vermouth got a dirty martini instead.
Bread was very good. Soup was ice cold. Salad was pleasant.
Ordered Lamb chops medium for both of us got them raw. Returned them and got it back very well done with the potatoes and veggies ice cold. Desert was great.
Kitchen does not seem to care and was very slow.
Wonderful dining experience finished off with a perfectly made Irish Coffee
Excellent choices for restaurant week! Disappointed they were out of meatballs but made us choose the peas in sauce / superb! We will be back!
The food was excellent!!! I look forward to returning again...
Real gem in a neighborhood where you might not expect it. Servers were very friendly but be ready for a calm relaxed evening as the kitchen is extremely slow. However that was no problem as the live music was awesome. In the end, the wait was worth it, very fresh seafood, expertly seasoned and nicely presented!
Good food and service. We had seafood sampler and everyone enjoyed it
It was awesome experience !!! Especially for St.Patricks Day the Irish menu & the live music ... can’t wait for next year Patty’s Day!! Thank you 🍀😊
Max’s was amazing!!!! Food was delicious and service was outstanding!!!
Another great meal at Max's Cafe! You just go wrong eating here.
My birthday with my husband. We love the ambiance and the food. Our waitress was very sweet. I have to say though for the second time the bartender wasn’t very engaged. Not unpleasant but not welcoming. We will absolutely go back!
Absolutely amazing! Everything was outstanding! One of my favorite meals ever!!! Thank you!!
Excellent food, service and setting. Get the mussels!
The food was very good. The service was rushed at the beginning with very little time between the appetizers and the entrees.
First time I've ever been to the restaurant where the service was so poor. Two tables seated after us were serviced before us. My food was mediocre, my brother and his wife said theirs was good, but we were all unhappy with the amount of time that we waited for our basic no changes or special request dinners.
Second time there and it was great both times.
My clams and linguini we’re spot on. My husband and I have been coming here for 10 years and we always have a great experience.
We will definitely be returning to Max’s...........
Always pleasant to eat here. First time with a poor food experience. Don’t order the jambalaya: all rice 1 shrimp few sausages, flavorful but...where’s the meat? Mussels were as good as usual. Mixed fish grill with mushy flounder. Where’s the chef. Too bad it was our valentines dinner. Drinks were good including the old fashioned.
This is our 5th time here, and it is always a pleaseant experience.
Our food was wonderful, service was great, we were in a side room we had never been in and it seemed like there were too many tables in that size of a room. the noise level was very loud and hard to hear the other person talking across the table.
Food, as usual, was delicious. It was well prepared and served hot. Although we don't normally do so, two of us ordered drink specials and both were fabulous !!!! Despite having to work an entire room by himself, our server, John, was great. He was pleasant and helpful and did his very best to keep things moving along for all of his customers.
It's been a few years since we've been there but the food quality has declined since last we were there. The service was also very slow that night.
Excellent meal. Shrimp included in the baked seafood sampler was the best I've ever had. I've had much better crab cakes. True Caeser dressing on salad. Fair prices for very good food.
Valentine meal was good. My wife had the lamb chops but says they were undercooked. Steaks were good, a little chewy. Been to Max's many times, and it's always been outstanding. We were a bit disappointed in this visit. Hope our next dinner will be back to Max's normal high standards
Special meal for my special lady on Valentines Day. Went here on one of our first dates will always come back for a great meal.
We love this place!
Second visit. Only issues This time we felt rushed by the waitress. She was nice just felt like she had some where to go. Also bar is beautiful but bartender was miserable.
Will still come back again though.
